Thinking about changing plans...have rye growing and will be grazing it off soon. I was going to plant beans into it but now with the amount of hay we went through this winter looking at planting something for grazing. Would be planted the first half of June...any recommendations. Thank you

Great article by Sara Bauder on assessing Winter Wheat stands this spring. An ideal stand is 28 plants/sq ft, if your field is averaging 12-15 plants/sq ft is when you may want to consider replant options. https://extension.sdstate.edu/assessing-winter-wheat-stands

What would you do? Green cover crop (winter wheat) is growing. 6 inches precip this winter. Most of the water went into the soil. Last Fall was extremely dry. April and May has been very dry. Forecast precip has not developed. Is it time to stop cc growth? Going to plant soybeans in the next 10 days. Jut interested in any comments. Thanks.

I am planning on transitioning my farm to no-till and am looking for ways to ease/ speed the transition. I am wondering about using a commercial biological seed treatment. I am guessing the general sentiment here is to just use cover crops and not ill and wait for the process to work with the native microbes. Seeing what people are doing with Johnson-su compost and other products, in terms of rhizosheath formation etc, it is hard to believe it wouldn't help no-till transition. Anyone have any thoughts for or against this line of reasoning?
